A very interesting study of the times of America before and during the life of Robert E. Lee. Much can be learned about life in the past by such works but I often found myself wondering at what I felt was the injection of personal ideas, and interpretations of the author. I try to imagine how I might have dealt with such issues should I have written the book myself. I plan to take other works on the life of Robert E. Lee and see what they have to say.
I have listened to this work twice, and know I will listen another time for sure. Some of the parts I have listened to over and over again.
It is unbelievable that this work was written and published in the 1950s and is so applicable to today in the last moments of 2014.
This story needs to be proclaimed over and over, yet because of the 'progressive control' over our world, it never will get very far.
I have not seen the movies from this book, but knowing they come from Hollywood, I know they will not depict the true meaning of the story.
I knew I wanted to buy this book for the Learning Experience I would gain. I am not disappointed. In fact I am listening to it for a 2nd time to hear the lessons again.
I live in the edge of the Feral Hog region of this part of the State of Texas. I drive through their turf everyday, and know they are very dangerous. Who ever imagined a possibility that man would become a menu item for the Wild Hog population?
Very interesting work by the author. I almost didn't buy it because it was under a 6 hours listening time. However, I did not use a credit, and paid for it outright. It was worth it, and hope to see volume two here soon.
A wonderful work by Thomas Paine read by Glen Beck. I listened to this audio book almost three times before laying it aside. I will pick it back up again, and again I am sure. The first portion is comment from Glen, and I found it very informational and encouraging. You can the reader was full of passion and at times the rise of the voice was almost irritating. However, the context was 100% worth the listen.
The actual work of Thomas Paine is priceless. I agree this should be required reading and study for every young person in America, and even the world. Very much worth your time to consider.
